Tulagi, less known as Tulaghi, is a small islet (.5 km x 1 km) on the Solomon Islands, just off the southern shore of Ngella Sule. This city of the same name on the isle ('1,750 inhabitants') was the capitol of the Protectorate of the British Solomon Islands from 1896 to 1942 and is today the capitol of the central province.
After the Second World War, the capitol of today's Solomon state, Guadalcanal, relocated to Honiara. It was initially selected by the UK as a relatively insulated and healthy option to the bigger sick Isles of the Solomon Isle. On May 3, 1942, the Japanese occupy Tulagi with the intent of building a water plane air force near it (see Japanese Tulagi landing).
In Tulagi harbour, USS Yorktown aircraft attacked the next morning in a prologue to the Battle of the Coral Sea. US troops, especially the First Marine Raiders, land on August 7 and conquered Tulagi as part of Operation Watchtower after a days of fierce battles.
Following the conquest by the naval and naval armed services, the entire year saw the arrival of a series of PT vessels, including LTJG John F. Kennedy's PT-109 and other auxiliary equipment. On Tulagi, a small 20-bed pharmacy was in operation until it closed in 1946. It was also part of Purvis Bay, which housed many US Navy vessels in 1942 and 1943.

Tulagi and Gavutu-Tanambogo Battles
Tulagi and Gavutu-Tanambogo was a landslash of the Pacific War II campaigns, between the powers of the Japanese Emperor's Navy and the allied (mainly US Navy) troops on the surface. This took place in the Solomon Islands from 7 to 9 August 1942, during the first Allied landslides as part of the guardalcanal war.
U.S. Marines, under the leadership of U.S. Major General Alexander Vandegrift, conquered the Tulagi, Gavutu and Tanambogo Isles, under which the Navy had built a navy and floatplane bases. Landfalls were violently combated by the navies of Japan, which were overwhelmed and inferior by the Allied armed services and almost to the last man were killed.
Simultaneously with the Tulagi and Gavutu-Tanambogo landslides, Allied armies landed on the Guadalcanal, with the aim of conquering an airport built by Yemen. Unlike the fierce battles on Tulagi and Gavutu, the lands on Guadalcanal were largely unchallenged.
Tulagi and guardalcanal lands triggered the six-month Guardalcanal camp and a number of joint fights between the Allies and Japan's armed services in the Solomon Isles. Part of an operations that led to the Coral Sea Massacre, the Navy sent armies to invade Tulagi and the near Solomon Islands south.
On May 3, 1942, these forces - mainly members of the 3d Kure Special Naval Landing Force - captured Tulagi and built a waterplane, tanker and communication center on Tulagi and the neighbouring Gavutu, Tanambogo and Florida isles. Conscious of the Allies' concerns about the effort in Tulagi, the construction of a large airport near Lunga Point on the Guadalcanal near Tulagi began in early July 1942.
In August 1942, the Japans had about 900 soldiers on Tulagi and the surrounding isles and 2,800 employees (many of them Korea and Japan building experts and workers) on Guadalcanal. Japonese 3rd Kure Special Naval Landing Force officials and petrol men conquered Tulagi in May 1942 and almost to the last man in the Allied raids of August 7 and 9, 1942.
The Japanese invaded the naval line five nights, starting at 10:30 pm. While the Japanese momentarily breached the naval line and conquered a machinegun, they were quickly rebound. Japanese soldiers lost heavily in the terrorist attack. A naval Edward H. Ahrens- 13 Japanese men murdered that evening, attacking his location before he was murdered.
25 ] The eye witness Marine Pete Sparacino described the nighttime attack by Japan: U.S. Brigadier General Rupertus (center) will monitor the Tulagi, Gavutu and Tanambogo attack from his commander on August 7 or 8. 46 ] The few survivors of the war in Japan carried out separate strikes throughout the entire darkness, during which close combat attempts were made.
The entire Israeli opposition ended on Tanambogo by midday on August 9. 47 ] In the fight for Gavutu and Tanambogo, 476 Japan defence lawyers and 70 US Marines or marines were killed. Out of the 20 imprisoned inmates of Japan who were captured during the war, most were not really KORYAN fighters, but workers from Korea who belonged to the KORYANU.
